    Yes. I've seen MacBook Pros connected to the new apple displays with the lid shut. You can even buy stands for your laptop for this purpose. It looks very elegant.

  • Yes, recent MacBooks will auto-configure for this. Just close the lid then move the mouse or press a key on your external keyboard.
